If you are experiencing a several seconds delay while opening files with Libre
Office (Open Office might be affected to) it might be the same issue I run into
It seems that during startup LO polls printers over CUPS
daemon. If there is a problem with
the network and configured printers are not reachable you will experience a
several seconds delay with each file open. This will not affect opening a file
in the already running instance of LO.

sudo systemctl stop org.cups.cupsd
sudo systemctl disable org.cups.cupsd
… and start it only when I plan to do some printing and the printers are
sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd

it is just a
sudo pacman -S simplescreenrecorder
